IN MEMORY OF MUSICIAN MICHAEL NESMITH

Updated: August 15, 2023

Robert Michael Nesmith ( December 30, 1942 to December 10, 2021 ) was an American musician, songwriter, actor, producer, and novelist. He was best known as a member of the pop rock band the Monkees and co-star of the TV series The Monkees ( 1966 to 1968 ). Nesmith's songwriting credits include "Different Drum," which became a hit for Linda Ronstadt and the Stone Poneys.

After the break-up of the Monkees, Nesmith continued his successful songwriting and performing career, first with the seminal country rock group the First National Band, with whom he had a top-40 hit, "Joanne", and then as a solo artist. He played a 12-string guitar, performing on a custom-built Gretsch electric during his time with the Monkees and various 12-string acoustic models during his post-Monkees career.

He was also an executive producer of the film Repo Man ( 1984 ). In 1981, Nesmith won the first Grammy Award given for Video of the Year for his hour-long television show, Elephant Parts.
